PHS athletes place fifth at state track and field meet

LA CROSSE - Westy Bartsch shot put and the members of Prescott High School's girls' 800-meter relay team both placed fifth in their respective events at yesterday's WIAA State Track and Field Meet at Veterans Memorial Stadium on the campus of UW-La Crosse.

The 800-meter relay team consisting of all freshmen Abby Syverson, Grace Carlson, Tori Benck and Jessica Urman, finished fifth in a time of 1:46.70.

Bartsch, in his last-ever throw in high school, had a toss of 52 feet which is both his personal best and a new school record. It secured fifth place, a medal and a place on the awards stand.
